Original mixed media gold leaf cyanotype.
Hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
Handprinted on Fabriano Artistico Watercolour paper.
This work was inspired by the Greek mythological story of the transformation of Philomela into a nightingale.
Gilded Transformation (Square) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of nude portraiture and an illustration of a nightingale. The digital negative was then contact printed onto paper that had been hand-brushed with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour and hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
